Sassy Lil Treat Jar

I decided to make this sassy lil treat jar just because I like things that can be used in my classroom, but don't necessarily look like they came from a "teacher store" :)

Things You Will Need to Make Your Own Teacher Treat Jar:

1. A clear plastic jar (mine is from Wal-Mart ($1.68 I think) and is Rubbermaid)
2. Pattern Paper
3. Mod Podge
4. Hot Glue Gun
5. Ribbon
6. BLING (not an option for me ;)
7. Chipboard or mdf crown or (other shape of your choice)
8. And for the cute lid topper check out eighteen25's free download...(There are other for mom's stash and a bubblegum bribe)

I measured the sticky label in the center of the container, but I DID NOT attempt to pull it off...I simply covered it with mod podge and patterned paper. Then I added the strip of zebra paper (more mod podge). Next, came the ribbon that I hot glued around the edge of the paper covering the label. Finally I covered a crown mdf shape I had in my stash with paper and printed my saying, adhered it w/ yep! Mod Podge and then hot glued the crown to the jar...then I blinged that baby out! Added the gingham bow, and then mod podged (Yes! I just turned that into a verb) the topper on to a black scalloped circle I cut out with my cricut.

Now to fill it up with some yummy chocolate!

I'm a teacher and would love to get this as a gift. I may have to make one of these for my son's teacher this next year. Very cute!

loved the sassy jar. It's cute and easy to do. Teachers would love this filled with supplies, candies, rubber stamps...

I loved the human calendar you have on your side bar, couldn't wait to install the widget in mine.
